Research focus of the Centre:


The Centre of Excellence ASPPECT will focus on the knowledge dissemination on the applications of superconducting and plasma technologies in power engineering. Such activity will be achieved through Education Process, Courses, Postgraduate studies, Ph.D. studies, Workshops, Seminars, as well as Thematic Conferences attended by remarkable foreign and national scientists. The Centre will develop the research on the basis of international cooperation, disseminate the achievements, speed up the development of the region and establish new links of cooperation between science and local industry. At present, the main concerns of the scientists are the most important problems connected with the market-oriented economy transformation and the protection of environment. The Centre also offers expert reports and consulting services. The scientific staff of the Centre is well qualified to carry out the research on the applications, international cooperation and dissemination in the subject of the application of superconducting and plasma technologies in power engineering. Through the participation in international cooperation and conferences the staff can exchange the experience in this field.
